The anthology of poems written during and soon after the Chinese invasion of India in 1962 contains inspiring poems which arouse patriotic feelings among readers. This whole collection is an official public relations exercise to arouse the Indian citizens to unite and face the foreign invasion. The poems are meant to be recited at mass public gatherings to create an environment of patriotism and sacrifice. As for the dictions and literary merit of these songs, it is better to evaluate these on the basis of their oral and oratorical merit and temporary appeal. Most of these poems are written on the pattern of ancient war ballads-vars.
